SHOT Show to Stay at Las Vegas Sands Through 2014

NSSF and Reed Exhibitions are pleased to announce that we’ve reached an agreement with Las Vegas Sands Corp. to present the SHOT Show at the Sands Expo and Convention Center through 2014. The move was approved by the NSSF Board of Governors at its annual meeting in late February.

Attendees have made it loud and clear that Las Vegas is where they want the show to be. The Sands has made some great improvements since our first show there, and improvements will continue over the next three years — including enhanced cellular service, newly renovated lobby areas and rest rooms and other enhancements to ensure the SHOT Show remains second to none.

The fact that so many in our industry want the show to be held in Las Vegas is understandable. Las Vegas is a first-rate entertainment destination. And the Sands is centrally located on the Las Vegas Strip with more than 40,000 hotel rooms within walking distance.

Many feel the SHOT Show is at its best when it’s in Las Vegas, and, judging by booth traffic and sales at last year’s show, we certainly agree.

The dates for the 2012, 2013 and 2014 shows are:

January 17-20, 2012
January 15-18, 2013
January 14-17, 2014

    The Sands is the worst convention center in the country to hold SHOT! NSSF must be getting a bargain keeping it there. Las Vegas is a great venue, but I know no one, exhibitor or retailer that likes SHOT at the Sands!

      Actually Kentm, the Sands costs us twice what we paid at LVCC.  The post-show survey showed dramatic improvement in both attendee and exhibitor satisfaction, so we listened to our customers.  We made a data based business decision.   I don’t what more to say other than we’ll miss you in 2012.

        Sir, please remove your head from the Sand(s?).
